The Shoebill Safari
The safari to see the shoebill
6 May 2013, for 6 nights
This is an exceptional 6 day safari combining South Luangwa National Park, Kasanka National Park and Bangweulu Swamps. One of our leading guides - Jacob Shawa - will lead this trip. Any of our guests who has travelled to Luangwa Safari House, will remember Jacob for his amazing sense of humour and great passion for the bush.
After a couple of nights at Nkwali in the South Luangwa the group flies to Kasanka there are many bird species that will be new to the safari and the sitatunga will certainly been seen at the swamp. Then the safari will continue onto Bangweulu Swamps, which remains one of Zambia special gems - with superb birding from all the water birds to the endangered wattled crane elegantly strolling around the plains. Of course the star attraction remains the extraordinary shoebill. At this time of year it is virtually a sure sighting. The area also hosts the endemic black lechwe along with tsessebe and buffalo.
